Camilla Schneier

Welcome! I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate at the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics at the University of Chicago.

My research focuses on industrial organization, retail, and commercial real estate.

Between 2017 and 2019, I worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in the international economics and macroeconomics research group. Before that, I studied economics, physics, and minored in mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania.
